Acura Reveals Refreshed 2022 RDX
The 2022 Acura RDX, featuring refined styling, a dramatically quieter cabin and a retuned suspension, made its debut at the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach. The RDX lineup is expanded with the availability of a new top trim, combining the sporty style of the highly popular RDX A-Spec with the premium features of the Advance Package. RDX's turbocharged 272-horsepower 2.0-liter VTEC 4-cylinder is one of the most powerful standard engines in its class. It's paired with a 10-speed automatic with standard Sequential SportShift paddle shifters. Acura's signature Super Handling All-Wheel Drive with true torque vectoring is available on all RDX grades and standard on the Advance Package and PMC Edition.
"RDX has been an incredible success for Acura, with more than half a million sold since it was first introduced in 2006," said Emile Korkor, assistant vice president of Acura National Sales. "The new 2022 RDX is the best it has ever been and further proof of Acura's commitment to deliver exciting premium performance products based on our unique DNA."
Drawing inspiration from the fourth-generation Acura MDX, the Diamond Pentagon front grille of the 2022 RDX features a new thinner, more sophisticated chrome surround. With broad aggressive forms and a larger air intake, its new front fascia also is similar to MDX and makes the RDX appear wider and more powerful. LED fog lights, which are standard on A-Spec and Advance Package models, as well as the PMC Edition, are highlighted by a new chrome trim. For a more distinct appearance from the rear, the 2022 RDX receives a reshaped rear fascia with cutouts for the new sophisticated rectangular dual exhaust finishers. The 2022 RDX will begin arriving at Acura dealers nationwide in early November.
